Lakers clear Rajon Rondo for full-contact practice; still out against Houston Rockets

HOUSTON – The Lakers are drawing closer to having their full roster on hand with the news Friday that Rajon Rondo has been cleared for full-contact practice. The team announced the development the morning after beating the Oklahoma City Thunder, their second consecutive win, and with a tough schedule still ahead. Rondo’s progression gives hope that the Lakers could return one of their most important veteran voices and floor leaders soon – even if it isn’t LeBron James who is coming back. The 32-...

IM Book Review: In His Majesty’s Secret Service

A little over thirty years ago my younger brother, Patrick Bell, left on an adventure. He joined Greg, his best friend from high school, on a clandestine team smuggling bibles behind the Iron Curtain. For two years they crisscrossed Eastern Europe bringing Bibles, medicines, and food to Christians who faced persecution and even death because of their faith. They took ten trips into Romania, where Christians were having a particularly difficult time under President Nicolae Ceaușescu. It was also ...

Gregg Popovich noncommittal about coaching future beyond 2018-2019 season

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has not committed to returning after his contract runs up after this season. San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich is typically obtuse with the media, so it can be often hard to interpret his true intentions. Despite massive changes to the team's typically steady roster, Popovich has the Spurs effectively tied for the No. 5 seed in the West after winning seven of their last 10 games.

Are You Open to Spiritual Gifts? Exposing the Least Biblical Position

It is a strange quirk of the contemporary church that arguably the most common way of handling the charismatic gifts, at least in the West, is the only one that simply cannot be defended from Scripture. For now, I will leave aside the question of whether the distinction between “miraculous” and “other” gifts would have occurred to Paul. On a number of occasions, however, Paul tells his converts to pursue, use, or eagerly desire the so-called “miraculous” gifts, and prophecy in particular: ...

A Parsi art historian rediscovers his heritage on a trip across Iran

What do you mean you’re from New Zealand?” a shopkeeper in Mozaafarieh named Omid exclaimed. We were in the carpet quarter of Tabriz’s Grand Bazaar, and I had just told him that I was a Kiwi Parsi. “Look at yourself: you’re a son of Persia. Welcome home.” This was one of many similar reactions my Zoroastrian identity elicited in Iran. It made me teary, as I walked alone through the vaulted streets of the world’s largest covered bazaar. By Areez Katki, When I told my family I was going  ...

‘Black Earth Rising’ Trailer: Michaela Coel Tries to Solve the Mystery of Her Past

I bet you didn’t see this coming: Netflix has a new original series! Of course, I’m just funning – Netflix always has a new original series these days.

Their latest is Black Earth Rising, a new limited series starring Michaela Coel and John Goodman. The series blends personal character drama with thriller undertones, resulting...

The Vancouver Canucks Are In The Hunt For The Playoffs

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, We’re late to this — which is the story of our career — but mid-January is generally the time when grades and awards are passed out for the first half of the NHL season. With that in mind, let’s start with the Canucks. The locals find themselves in 11th place in the West but two points out of the second wild-card spot. For most teams that would be considered a disappointment. For the Canucks it qualifies as a crowning achievement. Elias Pe...

Doc Rivers appreciates Clippers’ versatility in quest to exploit matchups

LOS ANGELES — Coach Doc Rivers is a big fan of the mix and match-up game, eager to experiment with on-court combinations when the opportunity arises. Take, for example, the lineup the Clippers debuted in the second quarter of Saturday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons: Lou Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Patrick Beverley, Tyrone Wallace and Montrezl Harrell. That four-guard group – of whom Harrell, the 6-foot-8 center, is the tallest – inherited a 37-24 deficit. In five minutes of work, they whit...

The Total Guide to Paracord planet

I’ve seen that when Elise browses the web buying paracord, she truly isn’t ever rather certain what she’s searching for. She commonly has colour preferences as well as has a certain feature in mind (to make a paracord cover for her new ESEE blade, for instance), however at the end of the day, she still has no idea what kind of paracord she’s simply taken into her purchasing cart besides how it looks. As well as you can not tell the quality of paracord merely by exactly how it looks. I figured...

Geoengineering could solve our climate problems if anyone allowed it

This weekend, I finished reading Oliver Morton’s The Planet Remade (thanks to reader Eliot Peper for recommending it). Morton has a multitude of goals with the book, but there were two I think are deeply valuable. First, geoengineering is a plausible approach to solving our climate problems this century, and second, engineering the climate generates tough policy challenges, but also opportunities to make the planet more equitable. TechCrunch is experimenting with new content forms. This is a rou...

Tough Western Conference schedule keeps Clippers — and opponents — focused

PLAYA VISTA — Not all conferences are created equal: When Detroit — one of those “East Coast teams,” as Coach Doc Rivers calls them — beat his Clippers on Saturday, it was just the Pistons’ second victory in nine games, which improved their record to 18-23 and left them just a half-game out of playoff position. That same record in the Western Conference would be good for 14th. Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here. With the...

Wyatt Earp was a gunfighter, gambler and gung-ho for California

Wyatt Earp died in Los Angeles 90 years ago Jan. 13, 1929. He is famous for his part in the O.K. Corral gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona, but lived most of his life and is buried in California. It wasn’t until after his death that Wyatt Earp was glorified as a gunfighting lawman. During his life, only one film mentioned him by name, and Earp traveled the West mostly as a gambler, brothel owner/bouncer and boxing referee. 1848: Wyatt Earp is born in Monmouth, Illinois. He is the fourth child of N...

Trump’s ‘trifecta of ineptitude’ on fires

When I got on the conference call with Gov. Gavin Newsom, along with six other California editorial writers Thursday afternoon, I was thinking back to newspaper photographs from the aftermath of the Camp fire. The then-governor-elect was helping tour President Donald Trump through the devastated town of Paradise. As they walked through Paradise lost, the many images shot that day by photojournalists showed a somewhat astounding — and then again, very humanly understandable — amount of touchy-fee...

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...
